Kodak Miraclon DF94BT

Hi, i’m in need of some advice on the kodak Miraclon DF94 plates. Up till now i’ve been using the Toyobo KF95 plates which have been working great. I changed to the Miraclon as the Toyobo plates are expensive here in Australia.

I have been trying to get a good plate all day, but to no avail. It seems that the Miraclon won’t wash out well enough, unlike the Toyobo which washes out nicely and leaves a crisp relief and shoulder. The Miraclon just won’t leave a good enough relief to print with. Has anyone had any experience with this plate?

I purchased it from Avflex, I had to buy min 5 A2 plates, which worked out quite cost effective but not if i can’t get a good plate!

Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated.

From the DF prefix, I suspect your plates might be intended for digital imaging, that is, direct laser imaging rather than traditional film negative exposure. See the specs linked on this page:
I used Miraclon and Rigilon in the 145-152 range before Kodak acquired the product line, had no problems washing out by hand or machine. I’m still looking for an equivalent plate.
